“The very person you find it hardest to forgive is the one
you need to let go of the most. Forgiveness means giving up,
letting go. It has nothing to do with condoning behavior.
It’s just letting the whole thing go. We do not have to know
How to forgive. All we need to do is to be Willing to forgive.
The Universe will take care of the hows.”
You Can Heal Your Life by Louise L. Hay
Louise L. Hay, who just passed away on August 30th at the age of 91, was one of the most influential teachers in my life. I am deeply grateful for her wisdom, compassion, humor and guidance.
In 1985 when my mother passed away and I was falling apart emotionally, one of my friends in my Al Anon twelve step group recommended Louise Hay’s book You Can Heal Your Life to me.
I still have that very tattered book and look to her insight and wisdom about healing and forgiveness often.
Louise led an extraordinary life as an author, speaker, publisher, artist and so much more. Her publishing company, Hay House, continues to bring inspiring books, affirmation cards, calendars and much more into the world. Please visit www.louisehay.com for more information and a timeline of her achievements.
When I was first practicing affirmations, over 30 years ago, I was still learning that the key to healing is forgiveness and letting go.
In recent years, Louise has collaborated with Nick Ortner and the Tapping Solution to add EFT tapping to her affirmations. I have found the addition of tapping to my affirmations to be extremely powerful and effective.
Perhaps you are already familiar with affirmations, or perhaps you are new to the tapping practice. In any case, I encourage you to combine your affirmations with the EFT tapping practice for amazing results.
And join me in honoring the life and work of this beautiful, gracious, talented and inspiring teacher.
